The expansion of Belgrade Waterfront project will harm our quality of life, to what extent we are not aware yet, but we can guess, Iva Cukic, an architect and urban planner, and founder of the Ministry of Space Collective, told N1 on Saturday. Pročitaj više

„We can guess from how warm it is, how polluted the air is, what the prices per square meter are,“ said Iva Cukic.

„The authorities are not dealing with what the citizens need, but with a small group of people who should benefit from it. Urban planning should serve the public interest, not profit,“ she added.

According to her, research shows that part of Belgrade’s strip of water is 100 percent ecologically devastated, which means that it cannot go back, that biodiversity and the environment are threatened and that there is an increase in temperature. With additional expansion, the consequences will be much greater, she pointed out.

Belgrade Waterfront is profitable

Forbes Serbia editor Ivan Radak said, on the other hand, that this project proved to be profitable for those who invested in it.

Belgrade Waterfront is obviously doing well, and at this rate, they could build 5,000 and not 500 hectares and occupy the entire coast, he estimated.

According to him, apartments are selling well – last year they sold ready-made apartments for € 220 million, and for pre-sold apartments, the advances were even higher – € 360 million.
